DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT VEHICLE CODES

CODE 1 - NEW
New vehicles delivered by a dealer to the first owner.

CODE 2 - SECOND-HAND
Used vehicles with one or more previous owners.

CODE 3 - REPAIRABLE
Code 3 vehicles are Code 1 or Code 2 vehicles that have been involved in an accident. Code 3 vehicles have to go through roadworthy to be licensed for road use.
Is it worth it to buy a Code 3 vehicle?
'Yes', if the price is very low, and 'No' in that the cost of repairs plus the cost of the damaged car might be more than buying an equivalently aged, legal and on-the-road version of the same vehicle.
 
CODE 4 - PERMANENTLY DEMOLISHED
A vehicle falls into this category when the chassis of the motor has been either compacted, compressed, melted, destroyed or damaged to such degree that it cannot be made roadworthy.

If the damage has been restored or repaired a previously 'unfit' car completes a roadworthiness examination, it is then legally allowed to be driven again. Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to insure a Code 3, but not for more than 60 or 70 percent of normal market value.
